“I am here at Big Tree Retirement Community with the world’s newest centenarian, that’s right, 100 years old, Beatrice Dodge,” rookie reporter Rylie Rogers began his human interest piece.
He knelt down to meet the subject. Beatrice sat at a table interested only in eating the ice cream cake before her.
“Beatrice, do you have any secrets you could share with us on living a long, full life?” Rylie moved the mic to hear an answer.
“You know what worked for me? Not interrupting people as they ate cake,” Beatrice answered between bites.
“Oh! Spunky!” Rylie sent back to the station.
